Re:Painting the Pool in the Chamber of Sorrows 9 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
I ordered Skeletons too! - Thanks for the heads up on the sale!!!

I need time - i cannot wait to try to make inserts - Here are my plans:

Blue water
Green Acid
Fettid gray brown water with bones floating in it
Some soft misty purple (maybe with very fine silver glitter?) for the "picture behind scrying pool" - This device is awesome... there is a whole campaign concept there...

and probably yellow too, cause you know someone is going to pee in the pool! (the bard in our Rise of the Runelords campaign pee'd into the rune well... nearly resulted in a TPK!)

January is going to be a fun month of painting and experimenting

LMAO! I never thought of pee yellow :-D

I think I'll try the fettid brown water, though. That's a good one.

I missed the Reaper Bones deal on Kickstarter, but bought into the 2nd one. However, I did buy almost the complete set on ebay for a decent price... better than the one Reaper offers on their site for the Vampire Bones box, anyways... so I think I'm going to use the altar from that to make the next blood insert when I get it next week - somehow so that it can be removed and used in other setups.

I haven't quite figured out the details... but i like the idea of switching the clean water for the fetid or vice versa. Some sort of play into the dungeon and it is all relatively clean and happy and then there is a trigger and they need to battle back out through all sorts of degradation and decay. It makes more sense backward (slog through all the evil, fix the problem and then the whole dungeon "cleans up") but that would play out anti climactic. Perhaps there is an artifact that needs to be retrieved, but that piece is in fact holding the whole area in a stasis of sorts. When the PC's retrieve it, the wards are gone and the darker reality asserts itself. I just like the idea that they know the path back but everything has gone to hell and they can barely escape with their lives and the artifact. Have to think about it more, but it is a whole adventure concept that owes it's existence to your brilliant swapping inserts innovation.

I think you need to post a link to this thread in the sewer discussion. A lot of these same ideas are getting tossed about there and no one is quite sure if or how they will be possible...

The more this goes on the more I wish I had a 2nd pool... Does anyone know if there is a way to get the Realistic Water out of my pool without damaging the Darvenite so I can make inserts? Or is it bonded to the material now?

@AnimeSensei

From reading the product page it sounds like realistic water is probably the same formula as Vallejo's Still Water... which is what I'm using. On the Green goo pool I forgot to use the crayon to lay a layer of wax and was able to get the insert out without any real issue, using an exacto knife and being careful.

Would paint have the same effect as ink in the pool? Or do I need to head out and get some ink?

I'm glad the link to Wargames Factory was of use to you both. I ran into them at Gencon and they had a special going on so I snagged a box there. I have to say I liked the product better than I had initially expected. I actually have a box of samurai on the way and one of the random sprues of horses.

I'm hoping they get their submissions section running again, it would be awesome to see more sets. Plus if you give them a good enough proposal they used to give you a shot at getting some free sets made if it got voted into production. Supposedly they will be doing something similar again once they figure it out.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

I am new to the whole world of unpainted stuff so it will be fun for me (and skeletons should be pretty easy). I am not sure how many i will assemble... i just want lots of bones as dungeon dressings! It will be a while before i get time to play with them but i will definitely post my results.

The fabulous thing about these forums is how many new ideas you get and how many new products you discover... although if i am going to have nay disposable income for Caverns, i need to lay off Kickstarter and stop buying accessories for my current DF stuff ;)

You should get some ink. Paint will work, but it's much more opaque than ink so keep that in mind when figuring out how translucent you want the liquid.

One thing everyone should be aware of with the Woodlands or Vallejo Water products is that it tends to stay a bit tacky. I'm going to spray mine for two purposes:

1. So it's not tacky
2. It's a water based product and I'm seeing it warp somewhat, which I think is due to the humidity on any given day. I am going to try bending it back with some heat from the hairdryer or some heavy books, but it's my first piece and I'm going to do another one anyways since it's rather thin so I'm not too worried.

As well, you may also notice after it sets it may begin going cloudy but eventually it'll clear... this happened to my blue water tinted piece (the other two are fairly opaque so I cannot really tell other than the green lost it's paint detail so may be going through the same transformation). Don't worry though as it should clear up again. Mine did, anyways. The process happened over several days.

The sprue types can also let you customize a bit more if you get a pinch adventurous. Accessories from other kits combined with skeletons or zombies can allow you to make undead versions of existing stuff that actually matches.

I'm hoping that I will have time once this semester is ended to get it in gear with my painting and crafting. I have about a million ideas and no time to play with them!

Please keep sharing jchunick, I've enjoyed your work and how tos.

Kite, I hear you! Between Miniature Building Authority's castle kickstarter and DF caverns, my wallet is in terror...

@LordDust

After reading your post I tried searching for the Miniature Building Authority's Castle Kickstarter and can't find it. Could you post the direct link?

Thanks.

Edit: I found it. It's not slated to be started until March 2014, but here's their blog page about it; http://www.miniaturebuildingauthority.com/castlekickstarter.asp
